    Nokia Lumia 1520 price and promotional material leaks in China. The price of the device is confirmed at 4999 Yuan (around $820) with a 99 Yuan booking fee.

    Hmmm, 599€ would be just slightly cheaper than I expected. Slightly cheaper than for what Note 3 is selling across Europe. Though converted prices don't mean much.
    Comparing it to other Lumias prices being sold by this same store and then to EU prices would be interesting.

    I was initially on the fence about getting a phablet.

    But I held a Huawei Ascend Mate 6.1 a few months ago and decided that a phablet is the way to go!!!
    I do not like the Android UI though, fortunately Nokia came in and announced this beauty.

    I'm just not a fan of the number. 1520? Seriously?

    Just waiting on AT&T to announce their Preorder for the 1520. They have it on their website but it just has a email sign up to let you know when it will be available.

    Tech Radar's "cons" are "Messy homescreen" and "late to market in some countries"
    Seriously?

    How can it be messy when you can configure it how you like - unless they mean cluttered with so much going on - in that case, biggerise your tiles.
    And late to market.. how do they know that at all yet?

    I want the 1520 real bad too. I've been wanting to get myself a phablet for so long but never wanted to have to resort to using Android just to get my hands on one. Larger screens are awesome IMHO. I never could imagine getting the most out of my smartphone on a screen as small as iPhone's for instance. Ridiculous.

    I really want to upgrade my 920 with the 1520. The large 1080p screen is amazing!

    I'm probably going to go for the 1520.
    I didn't go for the 920 due to the weight and thickness.
    I didn't go for the 925 as although it ticked the weight and slim box it just didn't look as nice.
    Although the 1520 is relatively heavy, it's still skinny enough to offset the weight.

    Far too many sites are the same.
    They still include negative tone in their reviews of great products purely due to some deep routed animosity towards Microsoft.

    I want one. And badly.
    Badly enough to buy one for 700-800$.
    Yellow with black Smart Case. Love those cases. I was sold the first moment I saw them.

    32gb that is.. I wouldn't mind stripping the wireless charging of it and make it even lighter.
    That charging still looks gimmicky to me.
    Especially if you are mobile or travel.
    I don't have time to worry charging both my wireless charging brick and my phone.
    It's nice and fancy if you charge your phone back home or such but otherwise... i don't know.

    I have been on an iPhone 4 for so long. And iOS7 doesn't make it faster.
    So hopefully by the end of the year, I will be able to get this thing unbranded and 32gb.
    If not, Galaxy Note 3 it is.
    And I HATE Android.
    But those can already be found for 600$ online.
    By the end of the year with some luck you would be able to get one for 500$. Not bad at all.

    So it's all up to Nokia. The ball is on their side.

    Sure thing is, I am not entering 2014 with an old phone.

    ^^ Go with the matte 1520s. The Galaxy Note 3 hardware design looks very tacky IMHO. Especially if you're going to be coming from an iPhone.

    Sorry, that came out a bit wrong. It's personal preference mostly. The Glossy ones tend to be fingerprint/smudge magnets. But that shouldn't be a problem if you slap on one of those flipcovers :)

    I am actually playing with a Note 3 almost daily since I always pass phone stores.
    I held the Note 3 just get a glimpse of what a 1520 would feel in my hand.
    I actually like the width of the Note3. I like the grip I have over it. I feel it very confident in my hand. And the display is really cool.
    It has an anti-glare to it.
    And to think that Lumia's is even better I almost dream about it.

    Anyway, the Note's build quality is indeed a joke. It feels like a chinese 100$ phone.
    But I will put a case on it anyway (if I end up buyin it).

    I am a 6'3" guy so I have fairly large hands but boy, that Galaxy Mega 6.3" is really pushing it.

    To be honest I STILL consider 1520 in "normal" phone sizes and wouldn't mind using it, but those Galaxy Mega and Sony Ultra Z..

    Holy cow ! The Sony is a table in every sense, not a phablet.

    Already planning ahead for my 1520 purchase. I have a Focus S going on its 2-year anniversary Monday (best phone I have ever had, sad to be upgrading). I already ordered some cases from ebay/china and received them today. Here's one of them next to my Lumia 520 for size reference. Based on the thinness of the case, the 1520 will be nice and flat, even thinner then the 520.

    I'll be switching from the 920 to the 1520. I've always wanted a fairly large screen. Signed up with Carphone Warehouse who'll notify me when they have it. Can't wait.

    I'm seriously considering it (changing to white instead of red like I initially decided). The 929 size would be ideal, but I'm hoping the thinness of the phone offsets the 6" screen. I hardly own high end brand new devices (the 900, the iPhone 5, and the old Motorola Razr), and I'm ready to stop looking at mid-tier or used phones. I think I'm going to get this bad boy sometime early next year
